New York Yankees shortstop and captain Derek Jeter has been placed on the disabled list again and, according to Yankees general manager Brian Cashman, the trip to the DL will “effectively end his season.”

Jeter has spent the entire season battling injury, playing in only in 17 games due to a litany of injuries stemming from the broken ankle he sustained in the American League Championship Series almost one year ago.

The Yankees will now have to hope that the likes of Eduardo Nunez, the newly acquired Brendan Ryan, and the other young players on the roster to play a role in getting this team to the playoffs.

Of course, the real loss with news like this doesn’t come in the form of on-field production. After all, Jeter was only batting .190 and only hit one home run with seven RBIs. The real loss in not having Jeter on the field comes from the confidence and intangibles that guys like Eduardo Nunez simply have not had the time to develop yet.

Do you think the Yankees will make the playoffs without Derek Jeter? Let us know in the comments section below.
